Tom Zoellner Quotes

"...Her boyfriend gives her a Mercedes, [her friends] say, Oh, thats nice. But her boyfriend gives her a diamond, they say, Oh, hes serious. Its not just the gift of love-its the gift of commitment.

Kelly Rosati Quotes

"If every Christian family in the United States would simply commit to pray and ask God if HE wants to use them to bless a child without a family, well, wed change the world. If we can get the church to think about adoption not in terms of the desires of adults but in terms of the needs of children, I think wed see on a much grander scale how God sets the lonely in families."

Quotes About Edifice

"They are ordinarily men to whom forms are of paramount importance. Their field of action lies among the external phenomena of life. They possess the vast ability in grasping, and arranging, and appropriating to themselves the big, heavy, solid unrealities, such as gold, landed estate, offices of trust and emolument, and public honors. With these materials, and with deeds of goodly aspect, done in the public eye, an individual of this class builds up, as it were, a tall and stately edifice, which, in the view of other people, and ultimately in his own view, is no other than the mans character, or the man himself." - Author: Nathaniel Hawthorne

Quotes About Prudery

"Oh, Jesus," he said, wheezing with the effort it took to controlhimself. He wiped his eyes with the back of his hand. "You littleinnocent. Im fluent in French, but it isnt my first language." Itwas plain by the mortified expression in those green eyes that shedidnt understand, so he explained. "Baby , if I can still thinkclearly enough to speak French, then Im not totally involved inwhat Im doing. It may sound pretty , but it doesnt meanany thing. Men are different from women; the more excited we are,the more like cavemen we sound. I could barely speak English withyou, much less French. As I remember, my vocabularydeteriorated to a few short, explicit words, ‘fuck being the mostprominent."To his amazement, she blushed, and he smiled at this furtherevidence of her charming prudery. "Go to sleep," he said gently."Lindsey didnt even rate a replay." - Author: Linda Howard

Quotes About Christmas Pudding

"Theophilus Hopkins was a moderately famous man. You can look him up in the 1860 Britannica. There are three full columns about his corals and his corallines, his anemones and starfish. It does not have anything very useful about the man. It does not tell you what he was like. You can read it three times over and never guess that he had any particular attitude to Christmas pudding." - Author: Peter Carey

Quotes About Romance And Flowers

"Music is storming, driving, relentless, devotional, slinky, subtle, heartbreakingly-beautiful sounds that, lyrically, switch from the cynical to the sanguine, the defeated to the defiant, dealing in love, war, beauty, children, romance, rejection, Pethedine, poetry, panties, God, Auden, Johnny Cash, cold potatoes, too-much-money, not enough money, writers block, flowers, animals and more flowers. But maybe Im projecting here." - Author: Nick Cave

Quotes About Disbelief In Love

"This isnt over. I wont give up on you.""Ive given up on you," he said back, voice also soft. "Love fades. Mine has."I stared at him in disbelief. All this time, hed never phrased it like that. His protests had always been about some greater good, about the remorse he felt over being a monster of how it had scarred him from love. Ive given up on you. Love fades. Mine has.I backed up, the sting of those words hitting me as hard as if hed slapped me. Something shifted in his features, like maybe he knew how much hed hurt me. I didnt stick around to see. Instead, I pushed my way out of the aisle and ran out the doors in the back, afraid that if I stayed any longer, everyone in the church would see me cry." - Author: Richelle Mead
